Samuel Edward Glass, DVM, 83, of Gonzales, passed away Wednesday, March 18, 2020. He was born September 13, 1936 in Gonzales to Bryan Steen Glass and Merle Hart Glass. Sam married Sally Sue Neubauer on December 21, 1956 in the Gonzales First Baptist Church. Sam and Sally worked together as a team and enjoyed 63 wonderful years together. Sam was a member of the First Baptist Church, Gonzales Rotary Club where he was a multiple Paul Harris Fellow, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Avian Pathology, Century Club, The Association of Former Students of Texas A&M, and Twelfth Man Foundation. Sam was a Professor Emeritus of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Sam was raised valuing hard work and putting family above everything. He was genuinely kind, considerate and always honest. He was a man of integrity who believed a man’s word was his bond. Though he had a robust work ethic, Sam made every tournament, game and event to support his son Dale. Distance, weather or conditions never prevented him from supporting his son. Sam was the best dad. No matter what Dale may have faced, he was always assured that his dad was there to help him. Sam was also known as “Pops” by his adoring granddaughter, Macy. A forever bond was cultivated between the two from years of Sam taking the time to do the special things that created an everlasting love between a grandfather and granddaughter.
Sam was in charge of operating the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory in Gonzales for 34 years. In February of 2011, Sam and Sally donated the land where Texas A&M built the Sam & Sally Glass Poultry Diagnostic Laboratory. Sam received the Golden Feather Award in 1989 which is the top award of the Texas Poultry Federation bestowed to deserving individuals who have “gone beyond the call of duty” for the benefit of the Texas poultry industry.
Sam’s hobby was tending to his cattle. He took great pride in improving the quality of his herd. He was passionate about Aggie sports. He had been a season ticket holder for Aggie football since his Veterinary School graduation in 1960.
Samuel “Sammie” Edward Glass is survived by his adoring family; wife, Sally Sue Glass of Gonzales, son and daughter-in-law, Dale Steen Glass, MD and Ginger of Bryan, Texas, granddaughter Macy Layne Montalvo and her husband Ryan of Houston and brother and sister-in-law, Donnie and Lou Glass of Gonzales. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters, Jean Neitsch and Audrey Kelly and his brother, Bill Glass.
A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, March 23, 2020 in Greenwood Cemetery with Rev. Travis Burleson officiating. Pallbearers: William Glass, Kameron Glass, Dillard Glass, Will Lamprecht, Dustin Lester, Kody Lester, Ray Lee Raley, III, Keaton Glass and Kobey Glass. Honorary pallbearers: General Sam Turk, Dr. Tom Blount, Firmin LePori, Jr., Dr. Charlie Williams and Dr. Syed A. Naqi. The family sincerely appreciates the warm compassion they are receiving during this time of deep loss; however, attendees should refrain from usual practices of handshakes, hugs and other forms of empathetic expressions in consideration of present-day concerns in social gatherings. Family and friends may wish to visit to sign the guest book and if you wish, leave a message of condolence to the immediate family. Memorials may be made to the Gonzales First Baptist Church (or church of one’s choice) or the Gonzales County A&M Club.

Sally and Dale, our prayers and heartfelt thoughts are with you and your family. My memories of Uncle Sam are etched in my mind from long ago. They are of a loving family man that cared deeply about people. I know my Mom loved him deeply. One of my most fond memories is of our entire family having Sunday dinner at “Pop’s and Mumsies” house. What great family fellowship. Please accept our sincere condolences in this time.

Dear Ms. Sally, Dr. Dale, Macy and All,

Dr. Tom always spoke so highly of Dr. Sammie. In some ways, I believe he thought of him as the brother he never had. Our hearts are heavy as we so wanted to attend the services, but we were advised not to travel under the circumstances. Many, many thoughts and prayers go out from our family to yours - you were so blessed to have such a wonderful man for so many wonderful years!

Love Always,

Patricia, Rachel and Joseph Blount.

September 1973, I was truly blessed to meet Dr. "Sammie" Glass. Being a recent hire to operate the TVMDL in Center, TX., I was sent to Gonzales for several weeks of one-on-one training with Dr. Glass. From day one, a lasting friendship began, as we seemed to understand each other. When comparing our lives, we discovered many similarities - rural upbringing, vet school, working a year in Physiology and Pharmacology, cows, and so on. For the next twenty years or more of asking him countless questions/advice concerning diagnostics, etc., he always patiently gave answers, help, and advice. I always looked forward to various meetings with him - egg clinics, Poultry Federation, staff conferences, and AVMA. Here we could discuss our laboratory operations and life in general. God certainly had a hand in blessing me with Dr. Glass's friendship. I have lost my dear friend, and I will miss him so.

He was a wonderful, caring man. He taught my sister Carolyn "the ropes" in the world of business. Sally I grieve with you for your loss. He will be missed.
